3:15pm
any member of the public that would like to speak to this item please come forward. >> good afternoon eric brooks and localing the local green party. sounds like you're moving so fast i missed the caa item which is a good sign. >> we're coming back to it. >> i wanted to speak in regard to scheduling and the joint lafco caa meeting. i was at the last meeting and the first one started taking on community choice and cleanpower sf and rate setting, and i was -- it was good to hear at that meeting the chair actually say that we need a lot of the customer data and things like that, and a lot more study work to help advise the rate setting process before this is taken up by the sf puc and then the joint lafco /sf
3:16pm
puc, and a lot of that data has just a couple days ago come in from local power, but it will probably take throughout november to crunch that and longer to crunch that and apply it to the rate setting, so i would just ask the various bodies to be flexible in their time line now. we have gotten this thing passed. it's on the way and now we to make sure we have solid customer data and solid data in what we might be installing and inform the process of making the opt out better. possibly giving us better rates from the beginning or shortly therefore and making sure we're identifying customers the right way with regard to marketing this thing to them so we can way down below what is currently projected as 50% opt out and that is likely to go past the joint meeting next
3:17pm
month, so just wanted to put that forward that we want to make sure that we're not rocketing too forward too quickly setting the rates until we have all the information we need from local power and other studies. >> thank you mr. brooks. any other member of the public that would like to speak on this item? seeing none public comment is closed. madam clerk if you could call item three. >> item three community choice aggregation report and status update on cleanpower sf and update on california puc. >> and there are several reports and joint meeting that will be taking place and i will turn it over to the lafco staff and we
3:18pm
were joined also by barbara hale. >> ms. hale will speak to the first item. >> commissioners. barbara hale, assistant general manager for power. since i appeared before you last our commission has authorized us to go forward with a communications, customer notification the taft order with the winning group and we will go forward with targeting the group and what factors that we need to
3:19pm
take to add the boards communications and the focus rolling it out, launching the program to customers with service as earliest as july 2013. we expect to be before our commission on november 13 with a proposal for how to incorporate the direction from the board into the program, and then before the yourself and our commission in a joint meeting on november 30 where we will talk again about the same concept. how to factor in the direction we receive from the board into the program as we previously conceived of it. what the timing is that we envision to make sure that we're getting -- we're incorporating that direction and approaching the program at a pace that our commission and the lafco commission is comfortable with. >> thank you very much.
3:20pm
>> thank you. >> ms. hale. ms. miller. >> yes. i believe we also have a stakeholder meeting scheduled to discuss -- this is the stakeholder meeting where we discuss the work of local power and we discuss the roll out so that is scheduled -- i will you have three more rate meetings and next time we're together i think we can have kind of a complete, more complete package to you give in terms of rates and dates and other information. >> and i would agree -- thank you for catching the items i neglected to mention. i would agree with you except for i'm not certain that the rate fairness board will be in a position to advise our commission yet. i don't expect that will happen until december. >> okay. i do have a quick
3:21pm
question and my colleagues probably have other questions but in terms of some of the issues raised making sure people that don't want be part of the program have ample opportunity to opt out is there going to be an outreach plan or a plan for ensuring that that is the case especially with communities where it might be more difficult to reach those communities? so i am wondering if you could say a little bit about that. >> yes, we intend to conduct customer notification and education program. components that we talked about previously were very targeted toward the statutorily required opt out. now we're factoring in a preenrollment phase ahead of that opt out. that's the approach we think we're going to be recommending and how to ensure that communication and education that goes with that
3:22pm
plan is as responsive and as complete and deep as it needs to be to make sure that we don't have any accidental customers. >> commissioner pimentel. >> what type of outreach strategies do you have to educate the community members about cleanpower sf and how will you go about implement them? will there be community meetings or mailers? >> it's a all of the above approach at this point. as i said we just got our customer education and notification consultant on board -- authority really -- not even on board yet, authority to get them on board, so it's of course developing, but yes we see working with community based organizations, using community meetings. i would say that prior to our new direction from the board we had
3:23pm
conceived of a more media centric approach and now i think it's more hand to hand engagement if you will that we really need to incorporate more into the program, and largely focused at that preenrollment part of the communication, but there is more to come on that as we develop it with bringing our contractor on board. thank you. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >> thank you. and i'm glad to see the fliers that you've -- i guess the samples you have given us. just in looking at the samples, and i know you're just developing your materials i notice that it does repeat a lot that the energy provided by cleanpower sf will be 100% renewable and clean. i think
3:24pm
it might be useful when explaining that to mention that -- what the benefit of that is. that the power isn't going to come from power plants that create soot and cause childrens' asthma, and the reasons that many people in the community have for not wanting power plants in their community whether it's in san francisco or across the bay in another community as we saw with the trandzs bay cable. this enables people not to get the power from the power plants and enables the power plants not so much demand for them. i think it might be obviously not in such a complicated long way, but just to point out it's not just that it's clean and from solar and wind and that it's not from soot creating power plants. >> that's a point well taken to make sure we don't lose the
3:25pm
opportunity to educate about the benefit of that choice. >> and this is a premium. there is a premium because it's a benefit to the air that we all breathe and share. >> thank you commissioner for that feedback. >> thank you very much. vice chair avalos. >> thank you. just a couple questions related to the outreach efforts. we talk about opt out but not necessarily opt in that we had in the side conversation. i think it's a great opportunity. i think using us for the opt in process and i think both in opt in and opt out social media is going to be really helpful and i know we have used social media in relation to cleanpower sf but it hasn't been robust and i think there are ways of making it very useful and i think those are
3:26pm
strategies that we can employ. >> thank you. we would be very open to spending a little time with our communication folks and yourselves and/or the staff to mind the good ideas you have to reach out to your communities. i refer to as reenrollment and the opt in concept and people can raise their hand "i'm interested" and let us know so that we include them in the first phrase of the roll out. >>i think the joint meeting would be great and especially on the subject of opting in and have discussion on that as well. >> yes. great. thank you. >> if i could just add because i think the success of the program is dependent upon the marketing so think it's important that is shared with the commission, and
3:27pm
that we have some -- i mean we of participatory in the selection of the consultant and it has been great, but i think how we rollthis out is important and as we know in marin we have a competitor that will talk about opt out universally and we need the community, our leaders part of that effort and that will be very important and when we get to the third item here that we have a strategy. >> there is actually some interesting models -- i'm on the air district board and a lot of outreach they do. in fact there is a committee around public outreach. they have strategies perhaps we could cull to our needs for this and i think the director there of outreach is lisa fizano. they have "share
3:28pm
the air" days alerts and use the social media. they involve the directors to reach out to businesses for spare the air day and benefits and i think we can have a robust program and the wheel has been invented and we could modify it for our needs. >> okay. i want to make sure that i set the right expectations for the meeting on the 30th, the joint meeting. what we are proposing to discuss is sort of the scope and purpose of the preenrollment and opt out, what communities we're proposing to go to. once we have clarity from our policy makers on the approach we're -- sort of the audience, then we can dig into, okay, how do we best reach the audience? so we
3:29pm
won't be doing that on the 30th with the plan. we want to make sure we have the audience right first and the detail behind that will follow and it might be constructive to spend some time on the 30th getting more ideas and examples and models from the policy makers, from the commission, the two commissions. that might be a constructive item for discussion. maybe we can preview some of the models that you're suggesting commissioner avalos, and see if there is a general agreement that that's the type of approach you would like to see, and then we can go back working with our consultant to develop a more targeted focused program given that feedback. thank you. >> thank you very much. commissioner olague. >> yes. i will confirm
